Biomimicry is sustainable innovation inspired by nature. Restoration of habitats and ecosystems can not only mitigate the effects of climate change, but also preserve the largely untapped library of solutions and opportunities to change the harmful way we make and do things. The Green Harbors Project and Biomimicry Living Labs are working with local communities to bring back ecological functions in our degraded coves and channels in Boston, Wellfleet, Orleans, Cohasset and Gloucester.
